Bones and Raw Food diet case studies – the evidence behind the science

Our dogs are designed to eat meat. And they’re designed to eat it raw. In a previous post, Tom Farrington MVB MRCVS VetMFHom – co-formulator of HomeoPet and Verde Pet Health – gave an overview of what a raw food diet is and why you should feed it to your dog. But it’s not just theory. Tom is a firm advocate of a raw food diet and has so many cases where his four-legged patients have shown amazing improvements on the right Biologically Appropriate Raw/Fresh Food Diet.

See the results for yourself….

Raw Dog Food Diet case 1 – Micky

Mickey is such a wonderful case he arrived on a commercial kibble diet and was changed to a BARF diet of meat, meaty bones a small amount of veg and chicken wings… the results are self-explanatory!

Raw Dog Food Diet case 2 – Basil

My second Raw food case was my own dog, Basil. As a practicing vet, I fed what I had been taught was best and so fed the most expensive kibble diet. When Basil reached the age of 3, my wife pointed out he had a horrible smell off his breath. A quick investigation revealed a huge amount of tartar.  I decided to just put him on a raw food diet, stop the kibble and introduce just a BARF diet similar to Mickey above and within 6 weeks Basil had clean spotless teeth and went on to live to just shy of 17 years of age!

Note: Not all Kibble fed dogs will have teeth like this, by any manner or means. BUT raw fed dogs almost never have teeth like this.

    I’m considering to foster a dog. I have a quit place were dogs can relax and I have a garden where they can enjoy the sun.
    I already have two sweet dogs of my own but I want to do
    more for dogs in need. I am not sure yet… I need to do a lot more research.
    I am twenty so also studying, I have to see if I can do both.

    But why couldn’t I do both? I managed to take good care of my
    two dogs so why not a third? I love this article, it’s helpful♥️
